First Colonoscopy

The staff, nurses and Dr. Murali were all very warm and welcoming. At my initial visit all of my questions were answered. They are professional and work well as a team. This was the first time I was having the procedure done, but all of my apprehension was dispelled. I definitely plan to return in 10 years for my next colonoscopy.

Three Stars

very satisfied with procedure. waiting time a little long. main problem was after procedure; was led into dressing area, but i was still unsteady and fell against wall. nurse asked if i was ok, i proceeded to get dressed. nurse helped me to exterior area. my left arm felt like I had bruised a bone, but i was okay. the next day i golfed [thursday]. however today [friday], pain in arm was intense; went to urgent care, ulna bone fractured. i feel that patients should be monitored a little longer after a procedure to assure they are okay. my fault not realizing extent of injury.

Pleasant Colonoscopy

Dr. Murali and his staff provided the most convenient office visit and professional service I could expect. The experience of a colonoscopy could not have been more pleasant with Dr. Murali's in-office medical suite for performing the procedure. I would highly recommend his services.
